Skin Game ★½ 1931

Two British families feud over land rights. Not thrilling; not characteristic of working with Hitch-cock. Way too much talking in excruciating, drawn-out scenes. Adapted from the play of the same name. 87m/B VHS, DVD. GB Phyllis Konstam, Edmund Gwenn, Frank Lawton, C.V. France, Jill Esmond, Helen Haye; D: Alfred Hitchcock; W: Alfred Hitchcock; C: Jack Cox.
